Sunday, 17 January 2016

We take a look at the gentleman of the region carving out their own space on the blogosphere – and list our Top 10 bloggers who have re-defined the men's fashion and lifestyle arena with their own unmistakable identity. 

Our blog ranking methodology takes into consideration social sharing, topic-related content, reader engagement and post frequency.

 

1. The Soul Republic

 

Written by Corrie Weaver since 2013, Soul Republic is a music and lifestyle blog covering emerging trends in art, culture, menswear, tech and design. When he’s not DJ-ing or hosting events as 'DJ Crown Prince', Weaver delivers a fresh take on everything relevant to today’s modern man.

 

2. Sashdesigns.com

 

Kuwait-based graphic designer Saleem Sash is the blogger behind Sashdesigns.com. Launched in 2011, the blog analyses fashion from a variety of perspectives – from model profiles to interviews with the region’s emerging designers and photographers. In addition to featuring up and coming brands from the Gulf and abroad, his ‘Look of the Day’ section takes on the plus-sized men’s category, presenting creative on-trend looks for fashion lovers of all sizes.

 

3. The Style Choreo

 

Abu Dhabi-based Paul Ramos is a fashion stylist and blogger who’s topped many a best-dressed list. The Style Choreo launched in 2013 as a medium to share Paul’s fashion inspirations, and he regularly posts outfit ideas, grooming essentials and exclusive sit downs with big names in menswear.

 

4. The Shades and Scarf

 

Dubai-based fashion designer Ushi Sato started The Shades and Scarf in 2010 to document his love affair with fashion. Sato, who debuted his own womenswear collection last year, offers a glimpse of his quirky personal style to readers, in addition to all that he finds fascinating about Dubai in terms of arts, culture, lifestyle and shopping.  

 

5. SMF

 

First launched in Australia as Sydney Men’s FashionSMF blogger Elias El-Indari has been based in the UAE for the past two years and quickly gained a wide readership in the region. His sartorially-inspired looks transport readers to the most anticipated fashion events on the menswear calendar, while art, travel, horology and tech advice guide the modern day gentleman.   

 

6. Men In Style

 

Christian Kachacha has written about men’s fashion and lifestyle on his Men in Style blog since 2012. When the ad man and fashion expert is not busy lending style tips on the men's fashion segment of MBC1’s Sabah El Kher Ya Arab or working with celebrity clients, he reports on the latest street style, collections, grooming and gadgets.

 

7. Style By Kieren

 

Kieren Kanda launched Style by Kieren at the age of 17 to journal his passion for styling. His fashion blog offers a roundup of chic outfit ideas, in addition to delving into the wider pool of men’s lifestyle categories - fitness, food, grooming, products and travel. Over the years the blog has developed into a platform for Kanda’s interests in vegetarianism, fitness, sustainability and overall well-being. 

 

8. Waiching’s Wall

 

Launched only last year, Waiching’s Wall is the newest blog to make our list. It is written by communications and digital media consultant Jonathan Waiching Ho - a self-described 'Hybrid Kid' - who has developed his blog as a way to share his multi-dimensional perspectives on life. Dubai-based Ho covers a plethora of topics including style, food, home, travel, art and events happening in the region and internationally. 

 

9. Lo's Closet

 

Visitors to Lo’s Closet are treated to weekly outfit posts, as well as travel and food coverage. Keen illustrator Jonathan Pascaul moved to the UAE in 2012 and launched Lo’s Closet to document his experiences starting-over in a new country, as well as men's fashion and his own personal style.

Dubai-based journalist Dmitri Ruwan launched Diary of a Middle Class Fashionista in 2010. Having racked up over 18 years in the Emirate, he features an eclectic mix of topics, mostly centred around his love of fashion.
